There’s a lot of talk about privacy these days, with government and carriers trading your data like Pokemon cards. However, focusing on that is worrying about the wrong thing. Yes it’s bad, but what about that game you installed from the Google Play store that you allowed to access your device’s phone number?
In today’s video, XDA Developer TV Producer Kevin shows off XPrivacy from XDA Senior Member M66B. Kevin shows you how to set up XPrivacy to block applications’ access to your information, as well as how you can spoof your location with location-aware apps and this program. Check out this video.
